The idea of including a "Ballad Concert"

so when it comes, as did the occasion of last
Friday evening at Old City Hall, at the close
of the season, when everyone is sated with
curious music After the fall, solid courses

The Ballad Concert Is of value also, be
cause of the good opportunity it affords lor
giving prizes, as it were. In the shapo of solo
assignments to tho faithful ones w to have
contributed so much toward the excellent
choral work which is the Mozart Club's chief
pride. This stimulus to the chorus singers is
now of relatively greater significance since
advancing standards mako it less desirable
to have the cultivation of local sole talent
figure so prominently in the club's more im
portant programmes during future seasons.
The chorus singing of Friday evening was
not up to the club's high standard. Tho
"Bose Maiden" extract was evidently too
familiar: it was treated with a good naturcd
carelessness that forbade much precision
and refinement. The quality and balance of
the hole body of tono was, however, alto
gether delightlul in this, as in the other
choral numbers. In tho "Lucia" fragment
tho soloists were somewhat over
wcignted and tlie mmorchorus part was not
smoothly fitted in. Ethelbert Serin's set
ting of the quaint and charming lullaby wns
the prime feature of the programme. It is
absolutely delicious music, poetically con
ceived and skilfully worked out, possessing
a charm of its own that acted like magic
on Friday evening's audience as it has
w here or it has been heard. Its repetition
was compelled by such hearty, continuing
npplause as is not oftenheard. This was the
more remarkable since the grateful work
was not sung altogether as itdoserves nor
ns this chorus is capable of singing it.
Various changes in tempo and in
degree of force along with some
other marks of expression, all plainly
Indicated by the composer, were more 01;
less disregarded. The chorus was rarely
soft enough to form n proper background to
Mrs. Henkler's acceptable doliverv of the
solo rart; but this was due largclv to the
fact that Mr. Pritchard's unexpected ab
sence threw his share of tho pianoforte ac
companiment without rehearsal to Mr. Git
tings, w ho, naturally enough, erred on, the
side of giving the singers too much support
rather than too little.
Space is lacking, were it otherwise desir
able, to review in detail the singing of the
numerous soloists. In the kind of music
they w isely chose most of them were able to
attain very satisfying results. Miss Mar
garet A. Crouch deserves to be singled opt
tor her thoroughly artistic nud truly im
passioned inteipretation of the Salnt-Saens
aria. Miss Crouch proved herself one of
our very best sopranos: she should be heard
more often. Mr. Binehart Mayer played
the accompaniment particularly well.
Miss Sample, too, deserves a special
word as well for the luscious,
sympathetic voice as for the repose and ex
pressiveness of her surging. Mr. Edstrom's
agreeable tenor was for the most part well
handled. MUs Beesley was not in good
voice nor was Mr. Edwards: neither of them
did Justice to their proven capabilities.
Miss AngelU Sirs. Fricke, Miss Ashe, Mr.
Duff and Mr. Beail justified their selection
tor solo work on this occasion.
The audience filled tho hall and bestowed
most appreciative plaudits upon all the
efforts put forth by the ariedforces arrayed
tinder Conductor James P. McCollum.
Promises of the Pestival Patron esses.
As the appended programme will show, an
extremely enjoyable evening is to bo antici
pated by all who attend the entertainment
to be given next Friday (not Thursday) at
the Duquesne Theater under the auspices of
the May Festival Patronesses and a few
prominent men, forthe purpose of making
up as much as may be ot tho deficit result
ing from hibt month's big event.
Just a word on the. subject of deficits In
such enterprises. It is an absolutely clear
deduction ironi the history, not of Pittsburg
ulone, but of the entire musical woild, that
music ou the grandest calc Is not to be ex
pected to pay for itelf, no more than great
exhibitions of paintings or sculptures. Tho
line arts do not and cannot stand simply on
the plane of business enterprises.
Throughout Europe tho Governments, tho
cities and the petty potentates universally
make regular appropriations for the sup
port of musical undertakings. They could
not exiat otherwise. (That word, "they"
may almost be construed with cither the po
litical powers or the undertakings; music's
value to peaceful, contented society is well
under-lood o or there!) In our own coun
trj.thc Higginsons, the Carncgics and all
the other public-spirited private individ
uals, richer and poorer, have to assume tho
burden -which onv Government has never
Commenting upon the customary spring
crop of inusio festival deficits (including
Pittsburg's) and tho various public-spirited
plans for meeting them, last w eek's Jjuilcal
Courier extract this crumb of comfort from
the situation: "We understand that there
arc many losses or like nature in the largo
list f musical festivals this season, which is
n happy omen, as it indicates that music is
being iaid tor by those, who areblessed with
abundant earthly goods."
Let us hope that in Pittsburg the common
duty of helping out so valuable a public
institution as the recurring music festivals
will this week be fully performed not only
bv tho wcalt hy but aNo by the general mass
of music lovcj-s,to whom the tollon ing popu

there "was a highly suggestive lesson in M.
Tschalkowsky'B visit. It brought to our
notice how wisely and patriotically Bussia,

laboring In behalf of a -national school of

inndo under tho auspices or the Russian
Government. A stipend, was granted to him

Bussia was barbaric Peter knew nothing
of tho art except the wild songs sung by his
soldien-, and when he wished to encourage
it ho did so by hiring a band of bagpipers.

Sera. 'Sow Bussia is attaching the best
men in tho world to her national school, en

.teachers by pensions, and its composers by

er Gerardy, the young; violin cellist, is much
.more of the artist and far less of the infant

for the past three years. The first lessons
were given him at the Liege Conservatoire,
but so soon as ho became acquainted with
Ilerr Bellman, the famous 'celloist of the

and, as he sees their movements, ho will hear

grand opera around the country on wheels
has long given good cause for laughter to
our trans-Atlantic friends, with their per
manent opera in every sizable town. But
when we get our grand opera by wire

company of the greatest artists that the
whole country's united patronage can seoure
